“Together, we can proactively breakdown barriers to make an environment safer, accessible, and inclusive to everyone in it,” says Kelly Patterson, DeafBlind Ontario Services’ Manager of Client Services and Specialized Training.
A great resource for that is the Accessibility Guidelines for Sensory Loss, now in its third edition.
Developed by DeafBlind Ontario Services with the accessibility needs of individuals with deafblindness in mind, the guidelines can benefit anyone with sensory loss. The new edition of the guidelines includes information about assistive devices.
Accessibility features are a right to individuals with varying disabilities and challenges and can become a necessity for anyone growing older.
Please consider reading the Accessibility Guidelines for Sensory Loss, which is available free for download in an accessible format on DeafBlind Ontario’s website, as well as help us to extend the reach in promoting the guidelines within your field and to your members, organization, government, and the public.
